Employer of Choice



How to become an Employer of Choice

In today's environment, many manufacturers are struggling to fill open positions and keep their existing workforce. Attracting, hiring and developing new employees is an investment, and engaging and retaining current workers is critical to maximize that investment and increase productivity.  
Discover what it means to become an employer of choice and take the steps to learn how to better overcome talent management challenges.


Job Quality Matters

The challenge of attracting and retaining a diverse, productive, engaged workforce has grown significantly in recent years. Workers seek quality jobs, and companies that prioritize job quality become employers of choice.
Job quality is not just about the job; it is a combination of key drivers that are important to each worker’s overall employment experience. Pay and benefits matter, and so do a multitude of other factors such as workplace safety and health, having a voice in decision making, scheduling predictability, feeling valued, skills building, and advancement. Together, these distinguish an employer of choice from the rest.
